Another lovely day in New Orleans, another lovely bicycle ride. After getting some work done at home, I hopped on the Surly and headed down to the Bywater for what I thought would be coffee, but turned into a second lunch (grilled cheese with pears and caramelized onions? you tease!). After a little of this and a little of that, I rode to the gym, and then to S.’s house. She wanted to know if I wanted to take her bicycle shopping this weekend. Hmm. Well. Let me check my calendar. Flip flip flip. Yes, ma’am, I believe I can make time for that. I headed back home up Baronne, pedaling hard in the positively, most wondrously cool late afternoon air. I stopped at Terpsichore to take a picture of these junked out old taxi cabs behind a fence. The fence is lined, so this is part of a tiny section where you can see through to the junkyard behind it. Across the street and two blocks up a new development has just been built, looking like one of those pedestrian malls in central California, but here, it’s still trashed. Block by block, block by block.
